Apple confirms multiple Thursday service outages

updated 03:02 pm EST, Thu February 21, 2013

Services back online, but hit iTunes, app stores

Apple suffered multiple online service outages earlier on Thursday, the company's system status page now confirms. Between 9:40AM and 11:50AM Eastern time, purchases at the iTunes Store and the Mac and iOS App Stores may not have gone through. The company also confirms some Wednesday problems in which people couldn't access iCloud calendars.

Although Apple's status page now shows green lights for all services, some users are still complaining about trouble accessing content. That may mean that any current issues are residual. For the iTunes and app store outages, Apple indicates only that "some" users were affected; for the calendar glitches, it claims that "less than 1%" had difficulty.
